I've been without a laptop for a week. As a student, it really bites. I have a lot of papers to write, and I hate using Word. Ecrit.es was my solution. It is a minimal text editor that uses local storage (don't worry about saving) and can export your writings as a markdown file. While I don't see this as something that will replace iA Writer for me yet, I have no doubt that it will in the future. I'd love some help with the scroll bar. I don't want it to be too big, nor do I want it too small. Also, I would love to make it disappear while writing. For the curious: the name originates from the French word for "writings."
